“Using the access criteria delineated by the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the human rights to water and sanitation, we seek to create and pilot a mobile phone survey application for local community members, aid organizations and officials to collect and monitor data on water and sanitation conditions in urban Lagos.
“In addition, we would like to carry out participatory mapping activities with community members to identify environmental barriers that impact access to safe water.”
